I recently sent a couple of crocheted monkees to the very funny ( and younger than me <sniff>) Monkee Maker. From her blog, it looks like they've settled in well.
Here are Maisie and Minnie!
Aren't they cute? And they look great together! They were crocheted using #8 pearl cotton and a 1mm crochet hook.
I really like Minnie, she's really tiny! I really should make another one but there are far too many new things to try and I've been really enjoying myself with some stitching!
